Before the war, and according to the world almanac, ""World Almanac, 1938, pg. 510 -- world jewish population = 15,748,091""
After the war, "World Almanac USA, 1947, pg. 748: World Jewish Population -- 15,690,000"


The World Almanac was notoriously unreliable on this at the time and later revised its figures for the whole period 1938-1948. The real figures are about 16 million in 1939 and 10 million in 1945. See the link - scroll down to the section 'Jewish Population'.

dear sir, I m new about studying Holocaust matter.I would like to ask you why the World Almanac is not notoriuosly unreliable on the period 1939-1946. I would like to know where did you get the statistic about jewish popupalation of 16 millions in 1939 and 10 million in 1945. How it's possible to determine the real popoluation of the jewish population between 1939 to 1945.

How many people pactice the Judaism religion?

The total number of Jews worldwide is difficult to assess because the definition of "who is a Jew" is problematic as not all Jews identify themselves as Jewish, and some who identify as Jewish are not considered so by other Jews. According to the Jewish Year Book (1901), the global Jewish population in 1900 was around 11 million.The latest available data is from the World Jewish Population Survey of 2002 and the Jewish Year Calendar (2005). In 2002, according to the Jewish Population Survey, there were 13.3 million Jews around the world.The Jewish Year Calendar cites 14.6 million. Jewish population growth is currently near zero percent, with 0.3% growth from 2000 to 2001. Intermarriage and the declining birthrate have influenced Jewish population figures, although conversion to Judaism may help to offset this slightly.It has been noted by some writers that the apparent prominence of Jews is disproportionate to the size of their population.
